Great Fulford House is a Domesday manor and home of the Fulford family since at least 1190. The present house was mainly built in the early 16th century and is a semi-fortified mansion house built round a central courtyard. The shield of arms over the main gateway to the house bears nine heraldic quarterings each representing an important alliance with the ancient Fulford family. There are, all together, eleven coats of arms of the entablature. These have all been blazoned by the Note's author.
